According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Mets are talking to the Red Sox about Reed, but still fielding calls from other teams interested in the right-hander.
"Negotiations are fluid," Crasnick tweets.
Reed has a 2.57 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 48 games this season and is 19-for-21 in save opportunities, but it seems unlikely that he'd take over the ninth-inning job in Boston given Craig Kimbrel's performance this season (1.24 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, 80 strikeouts over 43 2/3 innings entering Sunday).
The Mets have reportedly considered the idea of a package deal including Reed
The 28-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the 2017 season.
